By now, we all know that the 2014 Corvette Stingray is in high demand and with GM recently confirming a one year waiting list for the car, it’s showing no signs of slowing down. The huge demand and inevitable long wait for the new C7 has caused dealers to mark up their buy it now prices by huge amounts. One dealer in California is asking $100, 760 for a new Z51 equipped ‘Vette, $25,000 above the MSRP. Now, we may have mentioned that the car drives well above its sticker price, but that’s not the point here.
Jalopnik broke the story yesterday when a reader pointed out that Courtesy Chevrolet in the San Francisco Bay Area were selling two Corvettes with a third of the MSRP tacked onto the asking price, a blue C7 going for $100, 760 and a black one with an asking price of $94, 325. Jalopnik contacted Courtesy Chevrolet, who hung up on them when they inquired about the price of the two Vette’s. That doesn’t seem very courteous at all.
With current demand where it is, it seems likely that someone will pay the extra $25,000 to have the C7 in their driveway now, rather than a year from now. Or you know, they could just look for a more affordable listing.
